Cardinal Rule: Always listen to a Hall of Famer

Baseball is about one generation passing on its traditions to the next.

Which is why Hall of Famer Ozzie Smith spent time during the St. Louis Cardinals’ spring training instructing Cuban youngster Aledmys Díaz on the finer points of playing shortstop.

In short, no matter the differences in language or culture, the Cardinal rule remains the same. Always listen to a Hall of Famer.
